Pooya Aryanpour, born in Tehran in 1971, did not attend elementary school and studied at home, according to the wishes of his father (Amir Hossein Aryanpour, a pioneer of sociology in Iran). In 1992, Aryanpour graduated from fine art school in Tehran after achieving both a BA and an MA in painting. A lecturer at the Faculty of Art, Azad University, Tehran, since 1997, Aryanpour has shown his work in numerous exhibitions in Iran and around the world.
This is a pictorial journal recorded inside Aryanpour’s studio in Tehran, where he is working on paintings and installations for his solo show in May 2014. The exhibition will include a series of triptychs, circle-shaped canvases and a large-scale mirrored installation.
In his statement, Aryanpour writes, “…I consider myself incomplete, for I believe I have blurred vision, seeing neither the balance nor the mathematical calculations. Again I resort to whatever is surrounding me to discover within the geometry of life all the promises of justice.”
